209- Bloodbath at the Castle on the Hill

<< First < Previous Next > Most Recent >>

There's a brilliant moment in this scene in the book, where amidst the chaos and murder, where "for an instant it looked as though he might cut his way free" before the Hound's sword and Littlefinger's dagger stop any hope of escape. This entire comic happens in less than 10 seconds in the show, and under a quarter of a page in the book, but it still manages to be the defining moment in Eddard's story arc. After the slow build up of tension through the throne room scene, the climax is over in a flash, which only serves to add to the shock of it all. I don't think I say it enough, but this series is brilliant, and if there's anyone left on the planet who hasn't seen Game of Thrones at this point, they should definately give it a try (and then read the books, 'cos they're totally better).
